Fear will hunt you down right to the very depth of your soul
What I see especially among the Navajos and the Zunis and the Hopis is a culture of people who have been smart enough to learn a lesson that we’re awfully slow to get… They know that being rich doesn’t have any damn thing to do with how much money you’ve got. It’s got to do with are you happy and are you content.
Whatever you are physically, male or female, strong or weak, ill or healthy – all those things matter less than what your heart contains. If you have the soul of a warrior, you are a warrior. Whatever the color, the shape, the design of the shade that conceals it, the flame inside the lamp remains the same. YOU are the flame. That’s what I believe.
It was so odd what brought out tenderness in people. It was never what you have expected.
Forget the pain and the one who caused it, but not the lesson you learnt.
You may be to call up the entire encyclopedia, but a brain with no heart and no reasoning .. well, nothing is more meaningless.
After awhile you realize that putting your actions where your mouth is makes you less likely to have to put your money where your mouth is.
Quando te sentires com vontade de criticar alguém, lembra-te disto: nem todos tiveram neste mundo as vantagens que tu tiveste.
Don’t see where people are today and think they have always been there; it took a journey of faith.
This year has taught me the simple craft of belief. I believe in the things I’ve nurtured and built this year. Slowly but carefully. Such as understanding, knowledge, passion, strength; the hundreds of songs I’ve written, the 365 poems, the books I’ve read and the miles I’ve run. The resolution to breathe, to meditate, to not harm my mind or body even when I’ve felt like it.
